Requires the court of appeals to: (1) take up and decide an application for relief and writ of mandamus regarding a victim's rights within 72 hours after a petition has been filed (current law), unless the litigants, with the court's approval, have stipulated to a different time period for consideration; and (2) apply ordinary standards of appellate review in deciding such application. Defines "court of appeals" for purposes of crime victims' rights provisions to mean: (1) the U.S. court of appeals for the judicial district in which a defendant is being prosecuted; or (2) for a prosecution in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. Makes sums in the Crime Victims Fund that are made available for the U.S. Attorneys Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for services for the benefit of crime victims in the federal criminal justice system to be available only for such services provided through victim coordinators, victims' specialists, and advocates, including for the administrative support of such victim coordinators and advocates.
